80 bricks of suspected cocaine found inside truck in Windsor

A Quebec man has been arrested after officers discovered 80 bricks of suspected cocaine inside a truck at the Ambassador Bridge.

Police say a tractor trailer was pulled over for a secondary inspection at the bridge on July 30.

Canada Border Services Agency officers along with a detector dog team located 96.7 kilograms of suspected cocaine inside the commercial load.

The driver of the truck, 27-year-old Gurinder Singh, was arrested and charged with importation and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

“This seizure and arrest demonstrate the ongoing commitment of the Canada Border Services Agency to stop the smuggling of narcotics into our communities and the diligent work that officers do on a daily basis to keep Canadians safe,” said Joe McMahon, Canada Border Services Agency.

Singh is scheduled to appear at the Windsor Superior Court at a later date.
